The Rod McGillivary Memorial Care Home was established in 1980 by the late Rod McGillivary under the direction of the Rod McGillivary Memorial Care Home Board of Directors. The Opaskwayak Health Services Board of Directors currently provide direction to the Care Home, but it is the ultimate responsibility of the Opaskwayak Cree Nation.
The Care Home is a 30-bed long-term care facility providing care for elders and physically handicapped First Nations Peoples.
The original purpose was to provide a home setting for senior citizens of Opaskwayak Cree Nation, but the concept has changed to providing personal care to the elderly and disabled.
Residents are to be treated with courtesy, dignity, and respect in a way that fully recognizes their uniqueness and individuality.
Improvement of each person is promoted within a peace filled, life giving environment of choice and compassionate, quality care.
